The original pastel painting is 5" by 10 1/2"
If I could choose a place to visit and paint it would be Tuscany. The way cypress trees tower over the landscape has a magical quality. I applied my pastels thicker than usual on this painting to capture the thickness of the vegetation. I had a few reference photos which I studied and then put them aside to work from memory to capture the feeling of the place.
